Harry Potter Hogwarts Scarf Materials
- Fleece in house colors
- 1/4 yard background color and 1/4 yard secondary color
- Hot glue gun
- Sewing scissors or rotary cutter
Harry Potter Scarf Pattern
Start by cutting a strip of red fleece fabric 6″ by 60″.
Cut about 7 yellow rectangles 6″ by 3.5″ for the bands of color.
No Sew Fleece House Scarf
Measure 5″ up from each short edge of your scarf and create fringe using sewing scissors. Sharp scissors will make this step easier.
Cut fringe about 1/4″-1/2″ wide – about 10-15 pieces of fringe will fit. Repeat on the other short edge of the scarf.
Use a hot glue gun to attach the yellow coordinating fabric to the base scarf. Attach the first yellow block right above the fringe on one side of the scarf. Make sure you glue well around the edges so it doesn’t flip up.
Use another block of yellow as a spacer, then glue another down. Pick up the spacer and repeat until you get to the other side of the scarf. If your blocks don’t fit perfectly you can trim down the other side of the scarf and redo the fringe – it’s up to you!
